Small primary care physician practices have lower rates of preventable hospital admissions, compared to larger practices, according to a study published online Aug. 13 in Health Affairs. The researchers found that practices with one to two physicians had 33% fewer preventable admissions, and practices with three to nine physicians had 27% fewer, both compared to practices with 10–19 physicians. Preventable admissions were lower in physician-owned practices compared to hospital-owned practices. (Health Day News, 8/18/2014)
